January 2019 Go North East
This vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Percy Main, in a float/reserve capacity. Alongside Scania L94UB/Wright Solar 5201 (NK54 NUU) and 5204 (NK54 NUX), this vehicle should be allocated to a Nexus Miscellaneous Works contract board, releasing a fleet livery Scania CN230UB/Scania Omnicity to operate one of three early-return boards on the "Coaster" 1 and "Cobalt Clipper" 309/310 services. These temporary allocations are as a result of the "Cobalt Clipper" branded Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TLs undergoing repaint and internal refurbishment at Bus & Coach World, Blackburn.
January 2019 Go North East
Due to a gap in the Bus & Coach World refurbishment schedule at Blackburn, Go North East's planned refurbishments for the "Cobalt Clipper" branded Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TLs have been brought ahead. As such there is a requirement for three fleet livery vehicles to transfer to Percy Main from 25 January 2019. "Green Arrow" branded Scania L94UB/Wright Solar 4944 (NK51 OLH), which was previously a float/reserve vehicle at Riverside Depot, has now returned to full service, with this vehicle instead being classed as a float/reserve.

Service changes effective 28th January 2018 will see the fleet position at Deptford being restored to its normal balance. As such, one of Deptford's own vehicles will operate the Timber Beach Road shuttle bus for the remainder of the road closure, and this vehicle has consequently transferred from Deptford Depot to Riverside, in accordance with the originally-intended re-allocation plan, to allow the withdrawal of the final Volvo B10BLE/Wright Renown in the fleet, 4899 (V989 ETN).

Following the entry into service of Scania L94UB/Wright Solar 5230 (NK55 OLH) at Chester-le-Street, and the resultant release of this vehicle, it has temporarily transferred to Deptford Depot. From 10th January 2018, for approximately 3 to 4 weeks, services 8 and 36 will be unable to run via Timber Beach Road so they will divert via Colima Avenue and the A1231. A shuttle bus, operated by Deptford which this bus will be allocated to, will run between B&Q on Trimdon Street and Bristol Street Motors on Alexandra Avenue.

August 2017 Go North East
Though originally intended to return to service at Chester-le-Street on 9th August 2017, the diversion route continued on until this day due to the works on the Washington Highway being continued into this day. As such, a day later than expected, this vehicle has now returned to service at Chester-le-Street, with the "Red Arrows" X1 service returning to the route it usually operates.
August 2017 Go North East
This vehicle has transferred from Chester-le-Street Depot to Washington. Released from Chester-le-Street following the temporary transfer of four "Red Arrows" branded Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TLs to operate services 13/X25; the temporary transfer of this vehicle to Washington coincides with a short notice road closure by Sunderland City Council, which means that northbound buses on "Red Arrows" service X1 are unable to run direct along the Washington Highway on 7th and 8th August 2017, and will need to be diverted along Bonemill Lane, via Fatfield Bridge and Station Road to Shiney Row. Due to the low bridge in the area, double-deck vehicles cannot be allocated to the X1 service during this time.

This vehicle has been treated to a partial repaint into Go North East's new corporate livery. The new livery design is a a lot more eye-catching and features a two-tone base livery, with the traditional key colour of red towards the front of the bus, and non-metallic dark blue towards the back. It is thought that further vinyls will be added at a later date, in order to reflect the quality and customer values of Go North East.
